Transdisciplinary environmental and sustainability science

For the first time, the international journal GAIA – Ecological Perspectives for Science and Society invites Masters students to publish their research results in transdisciplinary environmental and sustainability science.

Each year, one article will be selected and published in GAIA as the GAIA Masters Student Paper Award winner. The award encourages Masters students to engage in writing scientific articles and – at an early stage in their career – to become part of the scientific community of transdisciplinary environmental and sustainability scientists. It addresses both students from research-based courses who have obtained interesting findings and/or whose research holds relevance for important societal transformations as well as students with outstanding Masters theses.

Together with their article, students are obliged to submit the name of an experienced mentor who is prepared to guide them through the process of writing a scientific article. In addition, the editors recommend that the mentor should become co-author of the article submitted.

EXTENDED submission deadline: 171114

Publication date: May 2015
